OUR 2 DOGS

Boozie (Blenheim - brown and white) and Fusspot (tricoloured - black, brown and white) are both Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.

This photo is from yesterday (as was the one of Daisy at the window) but it shows what these 2 are like - always there, usually comfortable, often snoozing but always where we are.

I love them and luckily Alice does too - and the feeling's mutual for the dogs. Boo's a bit cautious of Alice and occasionally takes herself away from the fun (seeking protection behind furniture) but Fusspot's braver and loves the affection, however vigorous it may be!

Now we have 2 - 12 months ago we had 4. The Cavaliers are both relatively young, Boo's nearly 6 and Fusspot's nearly 2 and a half. I hope that we have them for many years to come. I know that I'd like a bigger dog too, I've thought it through knowing that Daisy was ageing rapidly. After I've had time to adjust we'll think about a puppy in the spring, probably. (Yes Ellen - I'll be house training and potty training all at once, sound familiar?!)

So puppy training and potty training next Spring?

I have just two words, from personal experience...

LAMINATE FLOORS!

Look after yourself and tend that grieving heart.
